CCM&M #115 - Its a bugs life

Today over at Crafty Cardmakers and more our challenge is hosted by Kimx and she has chosen

'It's A Bug's Life'

She would like to see Butterflies, Dragonflies, Ladybirds, or any other INSECT as your main image or focal point of your project.

I have chosen to use a stamp called 'Sympathy Bugs' by Wee Stamps, I really love these cute little guys.

I coloured the image with copics and then added some glitter to the berries for texture.

I used some spellbinders dies to create the layers for an easel card, using card to match the main image.

The sentiment is from the SIL store and I used the pens with my Silhouette to draw it.

Lastly I added a bow, flowers, pearls and a memory box swirl die to finish off.
